Exogenous functional DNA was introduced into the germline chromosomes of the Mediterranean fruit fly (medfly) Ceratitis capitata with a germline transformation system based on the transposable element Minos from Drosophila hydei. Transformants were identified as phenotypic revertants of a white-eyed mutation carried by the recipient strain. Clusters of transformants were detected among the progeny of 390 individuals screened for germline transformation. Five independent and phenotypically… CONTINUE READING
